Default Most Overrated Movie Of 2006

Most Overrated movie of '06 would have to be Babel or Little Miss Sunshine.

Agreed on Babel. Although I probably just didn't like it because I'm not "deep" enough. Not really into those type of movies anyways. And I can't stand subtitles.

Little Miss Sunshine kicked ass though.

I really would like to see why you think Babel is overrated, because I consider it to be one of the top 3 films of the year.

Little Miss Sunshine was my 2nd favourite film of the year.
Babel was my 3rd.

So yeaaa, I can't really agree with you there.

I think both are very over-rated. Babel IMO was awful. Little Miss Sunshine was kind of funny/good but not best movie funny/good.

If Crash hadn't come out last year, Babel might've done better, but two movies with the same premise(a story that links seemingly unrelated people together) back-to-back...that means murder for the film that follows.

The story of Crash actually was compelling though. Babel was uninteresting and so lightly connected that it was like watching four different stories.

From a review:

Quote:
Babel makes Crash, another recent film with converging stories and a multicultural cast, look like an undergraduate term paper on race relations.

Damn, really? I loved Crash. That's not to say I didn't enjoy Babel, I was a little harsh in my first post here. I didn't hate it, but I wasn't in agreeance with most about it being a top film of the year.

Crash I absolutely adored.

Babel was overrated. It has some nice shots to it... some nicely done scenes... but some parts were too disconnected while others were too forced. I didn't think Crash deserved best picture either.

Little Miss Sunshine was good. I thoguht it was a fairly original comedy.

Crash was definitely not the first movie of its kind. I really didn't like that movie, but I thought Babel was good.
